There's more than how they played or how it sounds going on at this show, Mic check the setlist. It makes sense, given the date.

Wow... The Foolish Heart is intricate and you can hear Jerry not only tearing it up, but doing so WITH the band!

Phenomenal 2nd set here; I tend to champion the previous night at the better of the Deer Creek '90 run, but to each his own...

Set 1 is adequate, but that's it. It runs through a few fine numbers but doesn't really go anywhere. Desolation Row from this night has a LOT of fans; I think if Healy retrained from using his vocal effect-thing it would have come off better. I generally love Healy's contributions and often found them in good taste, but Dylan's big ol' masterpiece needs no augmentation; this is equivalent to turning a movie into 3D post-production; no thanks, Dan.

Second set, on the other hand, DELIVERS in one long, giant suite. Victim goes through a **serious** meltdown and listen to how gracefully Foolish Heart rises from those ashes. Playin' is no time-filler, neither - they get *active* here and Jer gets busy with a couple of midi f/x...China Doll has an absolutely blistering solo - playing this one pre-drums means they really have to gear it up, and they do (recall that warped mindbender they did @ Alpine Valley the year prior?)

...d>s is one of those that really makes a statement - just let yourself drift off into that American mythos; Watchtower and NFA really get in on the action, too; listen to Jer's solo in the latter :::yow!:::

This show overall is a much better performance for Jerry than the previous night. He is just so much more on and Phil is a beast the entire show too.
The 1st is really good and as noted below Jack Staw is a passionate version. TLEO is excellent since is was rarely played these days. I have to say that the next two song are stunning. Desolation Row is flat out incredible.Phil and Jerry are totally into it. Except for a couple moments inwhich Healy puts Weir through the screech box, it is one of the better versions out there.
Row Jimmy is the perfect summer song and again Jerry soars on this version.

Picasso Moon is high energy but does suffer from the misteps typical of how they were never playing it right that year.
Althea has Jerry righting the ship oh so well with a killer version and then a rocking set closing Promised Land.

Victim is much better and tighter than the vesion they would play in Tinely Park, that one was a mess.I alway like the pairing with Foolish Heart and this one is really good, no long jam into Playing but this one is easily in the top 5 for the year.
The Playing> China Doll> Uncle John's Band is the clear high light of this show. It is excellent, full of energy with tight playing and lots of passion from Jerry. His solo in China Doll alone is worth the effort.Then to tranistion into a joyous Uncle John's band is heaven.
The post space may look ordinary on paper but is of the same high caliber. The Black Peter is cranking and then Phil and Jerry go off in NFA big time.
A rousing US Blues sent the faithful into the summmer night.
